The Grand Budapest Hotel - Grading And Discussion

While the world premiere was a couple of weeks back, the US premiere is tomorrow with a limited release in L.A. and NY with a wider release the following Friday. The movie is getting good reviews so far and I can't wait to see it. It's always good to step into Wes' world every couple of years or so, for something out of the ordinary.

A few goodies to tide you over (may contain minor spoilers):

Same! To be honest March kinda snuck up on me. I was more focused on the DVD \ Blu release of "Inside Llewyn Davis" when I realized that we were only two weeks away from "Grand Budapest Hotel". Both come out in the same week, so it's gonna be awesome next week.

When I saw "Moonrise Kingdom", I saw the first show on opening day and there was some cool swag there for people. Some postcards with different characters on them, an 11x17 of the movie poster, so I plan on doing the same to see what or if they do it again for this flick.

Re: The Grand Budapest Hotel - Grading And Discussion

I saw The Grand Budapest Hotel opening night in Brussels last Wednesday and loved every moment of it. The film is Wes Anderson at his best with all the nuanced details, quirky characters, and unique manner of telling the story (both writing and directing). I loved the onion layer storytelling in the introduction and conclusion, complete with its own Anderson quirkiness. All that was missing from this film was Anjelica Huston.

Something came to mind after watching the film. Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and the Wilson brothers are the usual suspects in Wes Anderson films (and are all fantastic), but how is it Jeff Goldblum has been in only two so far? Their own unique neurotic tendencies seem perfect for each other.

Awesome! So psyched for this movie, but it looks like it's getting the same release as Moonrise Kingdom did, where it rolls out to more theaters each week. I'm bummed because it looks like my city will not have it this Friday. I took half a day off from work to see it, and when I checked the local art house theater, it's not showing up. It's looking like it may be the 28th, so I'm still checking dates.

In other news, it looks like the movie has broken a record:

I saw it yesterday. It's gloriously silly, contrived and fun.

It was a lot of fun. I was worried about Anderson for a minute, but this and Moonrise Kingdom were both great.

Same here. This film seems to be treated as kind of an Oscar season type film with it's limited release, yet it's being released in March. I really want to see it because it looks great, and it gave me a Moonrise Kingdom vibe, a movie I really really liked.
